The TWE Team is Expanding

 

Morgan Malone, Quality of Life Program Manager

Morgan Malone is a professional organizer, idea engineer, and dedicated Southside resident. Hailing from Old Dominion University, Morgan majored in Women's Studies and has since worked in positions across the civic landscape. She has formerly worked at a global research foundation centered around democracy, as a union organizer creating unions throughout the state of Illinois, and as a field director, creating outreach plans for varying campaigns.

Passionate about community development and creating pipelines for communities of color, Morgan has devoted her career and personal time to doing just that. She understands that the key to changing the world is to change Chicago, but the key to changing Chicago is the development of Englewood and other Southside neighborhoods. She looks forward to working with community members who are passionate about Englewood and collectively building the neighborhood we all want to see.
Chauncey P. Harrison, Special Initiatives Project Coordinator for Public Safety
Chauncey Pierre Harrison is a native of Chicago, Illinois. His gifts as a communicator and leader has afforded him the opportunity to speak at a plethora of faith-based, educational, governmental, social justice, philanthropic, and community organizations.

Chauncey proudly serves as a mentor, minister, and a motivator. He was raised in Chicago’s West Englewood community. Despite those odds, Chauncey graduated from John Hope College Preparatory High School, in June 2008, in the top 5% of his class. He was a recipient of the Gates Millennium Scholarship (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), which provided him up to $100,000 annually to completely fund his undergraduate education. In June 2012, he graduated from the University of Chicago with a Bachelors of Arts (B.A.) degree in Religious Studies.

In January 2012, he was accepted into Yale University for seminary, and later graduated from Yale University with a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree in May 2015. Chauncey aspires to work both individually and collaboratively with faith-based, non-profit, for-profit, and governmental institutions to address poverty, joblessness, hunger, homelessness, mass incarceration, and underfunded education in Englewood. Chauncey is also an ordained Baptist minister and member of the Trinity United Church of Christ. He aspires to serve as a community activist and advocate that fights to showcase the promise, potential, and possibilities of the Englewood community. Chauncey is an example that African-American males in urban America can overcome the odds, reach their dreams, and transform the world.
